    FOR MY NIECE
    Nevada Brown


    Like the fear you might have, watching a ferocious lion
    forcefully ripping its prey apart
    then noticing the royalty in it’s strut
    the gentleness it gives to it’s young
    and the proudness of its roar
    That’s what I call Crazy Beautiful

    Like the pounding rain, on a hot summers day
    and the disappointment you may feel
    cause you wanted to go out to play
    but the rhythm of the drops
    has such a soothing sound
    That’s what I call Crazy Beautiful

    Like the lose of someone you love
    the pain you feel because you miss them
    then to see them for one last time
    resting there all so peaceful
    without a worry in the world
    That’s what I call Crazy Beautiful

    You see, bad things happen for a good reason
    and sometimes, we just can’t find the goodness in the deed
    Such is life and death, and all that’s in between
    but oneday while your looking in the mirror
    starring yourself in the face
    then you’ll noticed in your eyes
    all the memories he had graced you
    the way he held your hand
    The way he smiled your way
    They way he made you feel
    whenever he was near
    You’ll look a little deeper
    and I swear you can almost see him smile
    cause right there inside you
    he’s been living all the while

    You may not understand this now
    but oneday you surely will
    You’ll open up your big warm heart
    and that’s when you will feel
    Wow, I’m Crazy Beautiful!

    I love you Nevada Brown
    May you rest in peace 2Five(October 10, 2005)
    We will never forget you

    This was so beautiful girl...you leave me speechless!

    I love the brilliance of concept...in "Crazy Beautiful"
    you broke it down...with such a newness of perspective
    ...I wasn't expecting the ending, I must say...
    you pulled the heartstrings until...the poured tears there

    ...thank you for gracing the board with this beautiful expression of
    "Crazy Beautiful" Love...
